How to Watch

Watch the Season 26 premiere of The Voice on Monday, September 23 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock. 

As fans prepare for the next nail-biting season of The Voice, Coach Blake Shelton is showing some love for Season 23 newbie Niall Horan with a hilarious video inspired by Horan's new song, "Heaven."

The clip in question features Shelton lip-syncing "Heaven" with passion. "This song gets me in the mood.. @niallhoran #heaven," Shelton wrote in the caption. 

As the camera pans in the video for the final chorus, Shelton is revealed to be serenading an empty liquor bottle rather than an actual person. Love works in mysterious ways, we suppose!  

Watch the very funny clip for yourself, below: 

As far as impersonations are concerned, Shelton wasn't the one to fire first. In a clip for Season 23 of The VoiceHoran donned a country accent and poked fun at Shelton for constantly reminding the Coaches and crowd that Season 23 is his final one. 

Shelton announced his Voice departure in October 2022. “I’ve been wrestling with this for a while, and I’ve decided that it’s time for me to step away from The Voice after Season 23," he said in a statement. "This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me. It’s been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns, and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew, and catering people; you are the best." 

"It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I’ve made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow Coaches over the years, including my wife Gwen Stefani! I have to give a huge shoutout to the singers–the ‘Voices,’ who come on this stage season after season and amaze us with their talent, and a special thanks to those who chose me to be their Coach. Lastly, it’s about y’all, the fans, who watch and support these Artists, us Coaches, and everyone at The Voice who are chasing their dreams," Shelton concluded. "It would not happen without you!"

Watch The Voice on Peacock and NBC. Season 23 premieres Monday, March 6 at 8/7c and the next day on Peacock
